You know everyone should adopt a fallen rider. A lot of TT riders were buried in the IOm because it would have just been too much to bring the body home. These men are most likely forgotten by family that might never have met them. It would be nice if your at the TT to find out the name of one and leave a flower on his grave.

My Old mans second cousin was killed at the battle of Monte Casino in WW2. A few years ago Dad flew over to pay his respects. First family member to do so. Nice thing to do.

@ admin great shot there of finnegan and porter, them pair had some real classic dices on the roads, remember one year at monahan last lap the big jump after start and finish both lads looked at one another,heads down pinned it,came to the jump and neither of them rolled off or gave each other an inch of advantage, they hit the jump side by side glancing over at each other while both of them nearly 5ft off the ground what an image both on the limit yet poetic as both of them flirted with the danger of going so high off the road with a right bend far side of jump, both inch perfect a memory im so glad to have witnessed.
